Paul's June Pick: Will Grayson, Will Grayson Pre Read
Title: Will Grayson, Will Grayson
Author: John Green and David Levithan
Year Published: 2010
Synopsis: One cold night, in a most unlikely corner of Chicago, two teens—both named Will Grayson—are about to cross paths. As their worlds collide and intertwine, the Will Graysons find their lives going in new and unexpected directions, building toward romantic turns-of-heart and the epic production of history’s most fabulous high school musical.
Hilarious, poignant, and deeply insightful, John Green and David Levithan’s collaborative novel is brimming with a double helping of the heart and humor that have won both them both legions of faithful fans.
Why?: I have wanted to read a John Green novel for some time now. I have heard great things about his writing as well as David Levithan's. I especially find this novel interesting because I've heard there is a gay main character.
Expectations: I expect this to be a contemporary story involving wit, humor, and truth.
Judging a book by its cover: This cover doesn't give much away. It is just colorful with the title of the book being the main focus.
